However, the can be daunting to setup which you only do once – if you need help just mail me.

Initially I was thinking of shifting from my Arcam AV to a stereo pre, but, I think I will keep my eyes open just to see if a bargin priced turns up So other family members probably won’t know which buttons are assigned where. I’d say it was as good the SB3 analogue out – or so close as to make no difference.

Absolutly av51003 post, answered all and more of what I llinn after, thanks!! It can be programmed to take over all of the functions of the SB remote, but unlike newer remotes the Linn AV remote does not have any LCD screen to ‘soft label’ any of the buttons.

I was thinking of upgrading to a Kisto so if you want to make me an offer for mine DTS plus blue display in silver,still under warranty just! Thanks again for the wonderfull post and usefull information!!

It has coax 3 I think from memory and one toslink digital inputs.

The remote is old-fashioned but still very strong. Hope this helps, Regards Phil. Anyone played linj a Linn AV? I have the final spec dts version.

Anyone played with a Linn AV ? [Archive] – Squeezebox : Community : Forums

I’d be interested lin put higher bit rates than However if you buy a 2nd hand machine, you cannot easily tell which input name is associated with which physical connector on the back. I used the with a variety of v expensive CDP’s including a CD12 and it never sounded anything less than fine to me. Qv5103 true of some older equipment esp. There is a myth that Linn gear only works with other Linn gear.

It seems to happily accept feeds from the SB of both 16bit and 24bit flac files. I have named input1 “squeez” and on the remote it is associated with linnn ‘DAT’ button.

I few dealers, have them 2nd hand, ebay has one at the mo, and still new end of line in Aus and Ireland as far as I can work out. Hiya, Have heard good things about these things, and just wondered if you lihn ever heard or owned one.

Cheers Deaf Cat – happy to help if I can. Like Phil, mine is a DTS spec model and the front panel buttons are hard to press but they do still work. I also have an AV plus their 5 channel amp and speakers and an SB3 and it sounds fine. Linn speakersthe works with pretty much any ancilliary gear.

Manuals – AV 5103

It may be 2 years since the last post on this thread, but I figured I’d put in my contribution. Have heard very good things about theespecially the zv5103 side of it, hence the intrest, two birds with one stone – possibly – dac and pre. Oh, and later models have a tweakable “Limbik” 5.

The sound as a normal pre-amp is very good – clean with no nasties, fast, clean, tight and lucid. However, I only ever use the remote whose buttons are more positive but the delay is still there.

Linn AV 5103 Pre Amp

Setting up the AV is a pain. I would not replace mine unless it died unlikely – I’ve owned lots and lots of Linn gear for over 25 years and NEVER lost a unit – excluding ‘Barik tweeters of course Obviously I’m biased and you should try it out for yourself.

The ONLY thing I don’t like about the is the stupid “dead flesh” buttons on the front panel – they are not exactly instantaneous and you often end up pressing va5103 twice.

As an AV amp it is superb – only 5. I presume yo are looking at a used model the was discontinued – make sure it is dts capable if you wan’t to use AV Anyway, my AV is set up to take a feed from the Squeezebox via a fairly low quality cable into electrical digital input number 1. Err don’t quite know where the 2 years have gone, still have pretty much the same set up, apart form a new power cable and 6 iso feet In its day the was quite advanced – programmable inputs with naminglevel memorysurround settings etc.

My Linn dealer told me that as a stereo preamp it is better than the majik LK wakonda, kolektor and kairn, but the newer ones are better.
